The Omanhene of New Juaben Traditional Area, Daasebre Prof. (Eemeritus) Oti Boateng, says the death of Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of United Nations was a difficult moment to bear in a world that needs more of his statesmanship to inspire hope and peace.
“The kernel of his life, however, remains a meaningful chapter of lessons not only for the present generation but also for posterity.” he noted.
Daasebre Prof. (Eemeritus) Oti Boateng who was a United Nations Commissioner on the International Civil Service Commission and   former Chairman, United Nations Statistical Commission said this in his tribute to Busumuru Kofi Annan.
According to him, he carved an enviable foothold in history as an avid patriot of humanity, a balm of inspiration and an enduring monument of global legacy.
“He was a true glittering jewel of Africa and the seal of United Nations trademark of leadership that lit the world in one of her darkest moments in history.”

Late Busumuru Kofi Annan

“Kofi Annan vibrantly supported all people working at the UN and its affiliate agencies, especially with African origins, as the first Commissioner of the UN representing Africa South of the Sahara on the International Civil Service Commission and my office as the as an Under Secretary-General of the United Nations, he was of much support and showed overwhelming interest in my activities.”
“As a former Chairman of the United Nations Statistical Commission through which appointment Ghana also became the first African country to chair the Commission 31 years ago in March 1987, the late Kofi Annan worked closely with me and other people to ensure success.”
“The late Kofi Annan also as a true Ghanaian cherished so much traditional values of his native land. For traditional rulers across the country and beyond, and those in the New Juaben traditional area in particular, he was a gem of tradition and our tribute today as a people represents an important interface between traditional rulers as well as International development governance.”
Kofi Atta Annan da yie. May His Soul Rest in Perfect Peace.
